Hercule Poirot is joined by the mysterious problem solver Harley Quin in the pages of The Harlequin Tea Set and Other Stories--a collection of ingenious short masterworks of mystery and suspense that showcase the legendary Agatha Christie at her very best.

A grand treasure for fans of the grande dame of mystery, The Harlequin Tea Set and Other Stories brings together nine rare and brilliant Christie tales of murder and detection that span nearly half a century of her storytelling genius.

In The Mystery of the Spanish Chest, Hercule Poirot unravels the psychological conundrums that motivate a killer. . . . In The Actress, a great star's shady past becomes the plaything of a blackmailer. . . . In The Harlequin Tea Set, Mr. Harley Quin helps a man save his loved ones from the greedy hand of murder. These and six other stories of danger and detection complete this stellar collection.

I really liked these short stories. I've noticed that Christie mixes the happy romantic endings with the bittersweet ones. At the end of these 9 short stories there are short stories with Poirot and Mr. Harley Quin. I haven't gotten to read any novels with Mr. Quin in them, but now I really want to. He seems like a neat character. I've also noticed that Christie puts in an element of the unexplained in some of her short stories, which I don't usually see in her novels. This collection of short stories is one of the best I've read so far.

Excellent. I have to get some more Agatha Christie. I hope to make some comments on these stories at a later time.

This collection of short stories written over Christie's long career focus less on her traditional murder mysteries (although it does include a Poirot investigation) and on more psychological thrillers aimed to explore the dark side of the soul. Often clever and always well written in her crisp, precise style, these stories are a delight to read.
